Collaborating with SkillValue
After taking advantage of a free trial membership, Atolia’s CTO signed up for SkillValue’s “Starter” package, which is free for start-ups like themselves. This subscription allows up to 20 monthly technical tests to be sent to applicants.
Our clients also activated SkillValue’s “Campaign” feature – giving them access to a series of quizzes selected from a catalog of 600+ technical tests, sent directly to selected candidates upon request.
Atolia used tests from both our French and English catalogs, notably in Front-End development. This helped them gauge their candidates’ language skills and facilitate smooth communication throughout all their active markets – a must for any cross cultural business.
Aline, SkillValue Key Account Manager, worked alongside our client to manage all testing campaigns ran successfully.
After the tests were sent, Atolia’s CTO received direct reports detailing the candidates’ results. With these reports, he was able to make compare his own applicants’ scores with other developers in the SkillValue community who took the same tests – ranking the applicant in the higher score range.
These tests allowed our client to objectively source and screen candidates who worked with Atolia’s tech stack and were available to start the project right away.
Following the technical tests, their CTO interviewed a shortlist of candidates, and found the right fit for the project and for Atolia.
This is what the client would take away from product development:
- Personal service
- Services that are flexible, a team who is mindful of the customer’s specific needs and end to end support throughout the entire recruitment process.
- Qualified talents only
- With a catalog of 600+ technical tests at their disposal, the client was able to select the most qualified candidates who were the best fit for the project. Today, Atolia counts on SkillValue for the recruitment needs of their team of IT specialists.
‘We started the recruitment in December and today (at the end of January), we have already found 2 candidates; we are still in the middle of the process. For the moment, we have recruited the two people we found. The SkillValue tests were a real help, especially with one of the candidates, as they allowed us to make a skill-based selection. I only have positive words on this experience.’ – Kevin Abrantes, CTO Atolia
